Support us at our first World Cup fundraiser! We’ll be having a bake sale in the student center atrium from 9 am to 5 pm on December 3rd and 4th. Don’t forget to support Hofstra’s one and only Quidditch team!
Twas the morning of regionals And all ‘cross the pitch, Not a person was stirring, Not even one snitch The snitch socks were hung on their snitch shorts with care, In prep for the seekers that would soon be there. And I in my beanie, my team in their cleats, Had all set up camp so the…
So unbelievably proud of my team after this weekend’s Northeast Regionals! Going into the tournament, it seemed like the Quidditch Gods were opposed to us qualifiying for World Cup. Injuries such as a fractured ankle, busted shoulder, and a kick to the neck resulting in stitches, were all obstacles we faced. Anything bad that could have happened, happened. All of these hurdles made me anxious about our chances and the thought of going home without a bid terrified me. Yet, we managed to rise above them and secure a bid!
Shout-out to my fellow beaters for stepping up and kicking ass after Leitch’s unfortunate injury. We proved that we aren’t a team that relies on one player but on one common goal.
*AND another shout-out to the so called “Quidditch Experts” who doubted my ability to step up and be the “game changer” for my team. I would like to thank your constructive criticism for inspiring my one and only goal on day 2: proving you all wrong, which I did.
To say I love this team is an understatement; I am already counting down the days until my second world cup! Myrtle Beach, the Flying Dutchmen are coming for you!
